Love makes you want to do just about anything to make the other person feel special. You go absolutely crazy planning surprises, spontaneous trips, several gifts, just to see the wide eyed smiles. But when you’ve found the one, a bouquet doesn’t cut it.
It doesn’t show how deep your feelings run, how much you want them around and how your day feels sort of incomplete without them. Here are some gifts that say all those things and more and what’s the best part? You don’t need an occasion for any of them, just immense love.
1. Get a couple tattoo
If that doesn’t say commitment for a lifetime, I don’t know what does. Get a tattoo of something you both can cherish half and half of. So when both of your tattoos meet , it gets complete, just like you complete each other.
2. Write letters for every future anniversary
It’s a promise that both of you will be together long enough for them to read every single letter; promise to celebrate your togetherness for years to come.
3. Build a time capsule of memories
Get a time capsule, put in a bunch of pictures, tickets from movies you watched together, bill from the first ever date you went on, a letter you want to address to the future her/him. Bury it close to your home so that you can open it on your 50th anniversary celebration.
4. Get a pair of matching love bands
Buy a pair of him and her Platinum bands that represent both of you as parts of a single heart. They will act as a symbol of the strong and resilient love you share. It’s a relationship of a lifetime and it deserves a gift of a lifetime. So what’s better than matching platinum bands to solidify that bond?
5. Stack up mugs with pictures of every milestone you achieve together
Line a wall with mugs. Not just ordinary mugs, but each mug can be engraved with a picture and a date that signifies some special moment or milestone of your relationship. It’ll be your own personal wall of memories.
6. Custom made couple magnets
You can frame your love on top of your fridge and around your house with adorable couple magnets. It can be totally customized to look like a miniature avatar of you and your partner! It’ll spread some love around the house, especially when it’s holding up your pictures on the fridge.
7. Make a video montage of your journey as a couple
Get friends and family to speak about your love story, re-enact your proposal and show her exactly how it’s been from the beginning till now.
8. Customize a perfume capturing your partner’s fragrance
Craft a perfume to lock your partner’s essence. Name it after her/him and you know the smell will always linger, just like the love you share.
9. Name a star after them
You’ve written your love in the sky. That says it all.
10. Engraved watch
A watch is a man’s next best friend. It’s always around you and consciously or unconsciously you’re always glancing at it. You can engrave your names together or the co-ordinates of where you met them for the first time.
11. Make a charity in their name
The relationship has brought you so much happiness and now you can extend some to a cause that needs love. So go ahead and share your love.
12. Write a poem or a song about your feeling for them
It’s an opportunity to express yourself. People say love makes you rhyme, so let’s see if it works.
13. Ask them for 5 things they wish for the most and try to make one of them come true
Be their personal Santa.
14. Arrange a meeting with their favourite author or celebrity
Make them meet their idol, you’d be their new hero for life. 🙂
Don’t wait for a birthday or an anniversary, because everyday is a day to be thankful of finding something that most people dream of: A love for a lifetime!
